How to use

This resource can be used as supplemental teacher material or as a primary basis for literature study to:

  • Draw students into a text with pre-reading questions and warm-up prompts, maintain engagement with in-class analysis through free-writing or discussion, and assess knowledge and comprehension with quizzes.
  • Ensure deeper understanding and enjoyment of the literature with activities for all learning types.
  • Stretch students’ critical thinking and writing skills with differentiated essay topics.

Note to Teachers: To support lesson-planning, connections to the work’s primary themes are noted throughout this resource (Indigenous struggles to survive, the trauma of boarding schools, the intersectional danger of being an Indigenous woman, and the connection to the Earth and space on it).
